He circles her waist with his arms and draws her close. She snuggles into the hollow of his body where she fits perfectly and there's an almost purr of content emanating from her.

“Listen,” he murmurs by her ear.

There was wind. Footsteps scurrying. Quiet, especially in their room.

“It sounds … quiet,” she says, frowning slightly. “Am I supposed to hear anything?”

“No,” he answers and spins her around to face him. Before anything else can be said, his lips consume hers and she leans against him, her arms slipping around him.
